    Psalm 29 Through Time and Tradition

    Product Description

    Description: Psalm 29, a sacred text in Jewish and Christian Bibles, has been understood in a variety of ways through time and in different traditions. This volume presents a sample of the use and meaning derived from a single biblical text. From the earliest translations to contemporary African Independent Churches, this psalm has been an integral part of synagogue and church; but what it has meant and how it is used is a fascinating journey through human culture. Not only the understanding of the written word, but also the liturgical use and the musical adaptations of a biblical text are considered here. This is a book for anyone--scholar, student, or laity--with an interest in the Bible in its many contexts. Endorsements: ""This book provides a fascinating sample of the insights to be gained through the application of reception history to a specific biblical text . . . The span of the articles is encompassing, treating interpretation of Psalm 29 by early and medieval rabbis, the church fathers and medieval Christianity, Syrian Christianity, Luther, Calvin, and indigenous churches in Nigeria . . . Overall, this is an impressive and engaging collection of essays, well-rounded and informative to both scholars and lay readers."" --Alan J. Hauser, Appalachian State University ""If you think you know all there is to know about Psalm 29, read this book! If you think that the true meaning of this or any other piece of Scripture is finite, knowable only by experts (ecclesiastical or otherwise), and eternal--by all means read this book! The essays are focused, informative, interesting, useful, and reader-friendly. Recommended for multiple readerships and settings, from AP high school courses to Elder Hostel programs."" --W. Boyd Barrick Montana State University--Billings About the Contributor(s): Lowell K. Handy, the editor, is an indexer/analyst at the American Theological Library Association.
